Looking for the best SP-X 80 loadout in Warzone 2? Sharpshooters are on top of the world right now with the release of Warzone 2. Sniper Rifles reign supreme thanks to the wide open environments and mile-long sightlines of Al Mazrah, and you're going to see a lot of players touting big beefy MCPR-300s and Signal 50s over the next several weeks.
But you certainly shouldn't underestimate the power of a lightweight Sniper Rifle. The SP-X 80 may not have quite the same stopping power as its bigger and heavier rivals, but it's still an extremely powerful and accurate rifle with the added bonus of a fair bit more mobility than even the best Sniper Rifle in Warzone 2 can hope to match.
In this guide we'll show you the best SP-X 80 attachments to use in your SP-X 80 build in the current Warzone 2 Season 1 meta. We'll also walk you through a few choices for which secondary weapon, perks, and equipment to use in our best SP-X 80 build so that you're ready for your next match.
Best SP-X 80 loadout in Warzone 2
Here's the best SP-X 80 loadout in Warzone 2:
- Muzzle: Bruen Agent 90 (Unlock at Signal 50 lvl 8)
- Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser (Unlock at EVR-14 lvl 10)
- Ammunition: .300 High Velocity (Unlock at MCPR-300 lvl 17)
- Magazine: 8-Round Magazine (Unlock at SP-X 80 lvl 18)
- Optic: Schlager 3.4X (Unlock at Rapp H lvl 12)
Thanks to the lightweight nature of the SP-X 80, we actually have a lot of scope when it comes to boosting the rifle's range at the cost of that extra handling. The below SP-X 80 build focuses on greatly increased bullet velocity, range, and aiming stability, while also keeping the gun light and responsive enough to deal with threats at a moment's notice.
Rather than weighing down the SP-X 80 more than necessary with a heavy Barrel, we've chosen to boost the rifle's effective range purely with the Bruen Agent 90 Silencer. Not only does this attachment suppress your gunshot sounds, but it also boosts the SP-X 80's damage falloff values, bullet velocity, and even adds a touch of recoil control to boot.
The .300 High Velocity Ammunition mod is a must-have for most sniper loadouts in Warzone 2, as it boosts the bullet velocity by an enormous margin and makes it much easier to land long-range shots on enemies. We've also upped the bullet count with the 8-Round Magazine, trading a bit of that natural mobility for a few extra shots before having to reload.
The FSS OLE-V Laser is visible while you aim down sights (as is the case with all long-ranged Warzone 2 Optics), but when you're already giving off a sniper glint, that really doesn't matter, so it's more or less a free way to add a bit of mobility back onto the SP-R 80.
Finally we've added the Schlager 3.4X, one of the best mid-range Warzone 2 Optics thanks to its clean sight picture. It's a good idea with this fast-firing rifle to use a mid-range scope that speeds up ADS speed and target acquisition at any range, not just over extreme distances.
And that's all you need in order to make an extremely powerful SP-X 80 loadout fit for your next Warzone 2 match. The high range and bullet velocity comes at pretty much no cost when you factor in the mobility boosts we've also added with the other attachments. It's a fantastic build (if we do say so ourselves), and you should give it a go as soon as possible.
Best SP-X 80 loadout secondary weapon
Despite the SP-X 80's nippy handling speeds relative to other Snipers, you'll still need a close-ranged weapon to pair it with. We'd highly recommend the STB 556 for a powerful and accurate mid-range option. It's our pick for the best Assault Rifle in Warzone 2 right now, in fact.
If you value high damage over accuracy, you can instead match the SP-X 80 with the formidable Kastov-74U, which wraps the power of an AKM into the lightweight body of an SMG. Perfect for closing the distance and finishing off an enemy after sniping at them from afar with the SP-X 80.
Best SP-X 80 class setup: Perks and Equipment
Our SP-X 80 build is perfect for cracking skulls from a distance, and the Specter perk package (Ghost, Double Time, Tracker, Spotter) will help you avoid being spotted in your sniper nest, while also preparing you for the close-quarters endgame.
Ghost is perhaps the most essential pick here, as it lets you remain undetected when enemy UAVs pass overhead. That's crucial if you're trying to be sneaky and snipe foes from afar without being seen. However, the circle will inevitably push you towards your foes, and Double Time's extended tac sprint duration will help you quickly push up to the edge of the next circle, so that you're still striking from the outskirts. When you are forced into close quarters, switch to your secondary and use Tracker to follow foes into their hidey holes, before lighting them up for some easy kills. Spotter should save you from an unexpected death here, as it highlights enemy equipment through walls so that you aren't struck down by a well-placed enemy claymore.
If you follow enemy footsteps into a rather crowded room, consider tossing a C4 charge in to bag an easy squad wipe. The Heartbeat Sensor is also important here, as it lets you assess how dangerous a room might be before bursting in, giving you a tactical advantage over your opponents.
